Let Uber make your special day a bit classier! As our way of saying “congrats”, we’re hooking up all Philly college grads who are new to Uber with a promo to get their first ride FREE up to $20!

  • Download the Uber app from the iStore or GooglePlay, or set up an account online.  You can also Uber from your Blackberry or request by SMS.
